Health & Safety: Security is on campus, there are boxes located around campus to call security, and rides available so students don't need to walk alone late at night.

Health & Safety: I haven't had any issues of safety on campus

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Whenever I am on campus I never have a sense of insecurity or worry about safety. There are always cops around you whether they are walking around campus or in their car outside of a classroom. The only problems I have ever heard about were alerts that were directly sent to my phone via text, phone call, or email. The crime associated with these were either a stolen computer, purse or other items, and there was once a stabbing close by. I would say the crime at FAU is very limited or goes unheard of because people are scared about letting it out for personal safety.

FAU has many services to offer in the ways of health and safety. In terms of health services, FAU has resources for after-hour emergencies, a wellness task force, and an AIDS committee, in addition to the basic health care the University provides its students.

The department of Environmental Health and Safety has the goal of providing the safest environment possible for FAU's students, staff, and faculty. This department goes above and beyond with its services, offering students programs involving the use of animals on campus, biological and chemical safety, driving and boating safety, and stormwater management. You name it—FAU probably has an answer to it.
